Home Learning 

Home Learning and spellings will be sent home on a Friday. Home learning should be returned by Wednesday and spellings will be tested each Friday. Each term the children will receive a grid in their home learning book with Maths and English activities. They must pick ONE of each to complete in their book each week. 


Please read with your child at least twice per week and ensure your child brings in their reading diary EVERY DAY as they will read with adults in school. 




In English, we will be reading ‘Stone Age Boy’ and creating our own recounts and information texts. We will be learning new skills as well as consolidating all that we know so far. The children will be developing their independence in writing and throughout the day now that they are in Key Stage 2. 





In Maths, we will be focusing on place value and the four operations. The children will be their visual math strategies to further support their learning. The children will also be learning/recapping their multiplication tables and number relationships. They will be using the four operations in both practical activities and when problem solving. Children will have access to TTrockstars at home to support them with their times table  and division facts. If you require a reminder about their log in details please contact a member of the Year 3 team.


Accelerated Reader


The children are enrolled on accelerated Reader which provide comprehension quizzes.  The results of these can be viewed at home.

Children use a software program called Renaissance Place at school. This program has a special feature called Renaissance Home Connect, which you can access outside of school from any computer with an Internet connection. Renaissance Home Connect is fun and easy to use. It allows the teacher, and you to share information about children's progress in Accelerated Reader.  You can log in to Renaissance Home Connect from any computer with an Internet connection and compatible browser. Children have been given their user names and passwords.  To log in to Renaissance Home Connect Website:
